My mouse is acting weird. it selects things when my cursor is over it.

Hi!

I got an problem with my mouse that when I hold my cursor over an windows thats unselected, it will select the window without clicking my mouse. This was so confusing I used an other mouse and did the same problem. When I was coding a mod for a game it was very enoying! it kept on deselecting the Eclipse window (Programmer for mod) and I was typing in a other window. I almost screwed some files up.

The basic problem: When I have 2 windows open and I hold my mouse on one, it will select the one in 1-2 seconds without clicking my mouse, and vice versa.

I hope there is an fix for that because I searched through all the mouse option and changing all of them, nothing helped

Hello Doggy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Disabling the "Activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse" option in Ease of Access Center may be able to sort this for you.

Mouse Hover Makes Window Active - Enable

Hope this helps,
